ACKNOWLEDGMENT 



The acreage, production and value statistics in this bulletin are official State and 
USD A estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county 
and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food and Re- 
source Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. The Bureau of State 
Markets, Florida Department of Agriculture, and the County Extension Agents, University of 
Florida's Cooperative Extension Service, were also very helpful in supplying area and county 
information. Shipment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of the Florida 
Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the sea- 
son. These groups include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Committee, Florida 
Sweet Corn Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood Sweet Corn Exchange, 
and North Florida Growers Exchange. Sales agencies and transportation firms provided the 
inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic data 
used in developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these individ- 
uals and groups is. appreciated. 

Fieldmen James Spires, Immokalee; J. B. Joiner, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs, North 
Palm Beach; and Larry Amlong of Palmetto collected much of the basic acreage, production 
and price statistics in this bulletin. This report was assembled under the direction of Harvey 
L Batchelor, Gerald H. Moody and Carl A Ouzts of the Florida Crop and Livestock Report- 
ing Service and E. F. Scarborough, Bureau of Market News.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



QUARTERLY GROUPS- -During the growing sea- 
son, estimates were prepared for most crops on a calen- 
dar quarter basis in order to indicate available supplies 
for shorter periods of time than the entire crop year. The 
Fall, Winter and Spring quarterly estimates are combin- 
ed into a crop year total for all crops. Production sold 
or utilized is shown by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been planted for harvest during one designated quarter. 
Acreage lost and replanted to the same crop in time for 
harvest in the same quarter, is counted only once. Acre- 
age harvested and planted again to the same crop is count- 
ed twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at ma- 
turity through natural or economic causes is not included 
in the acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production per acre of mer- 
chantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alentprice received, f. o.b. shipping point basis and en- 
compasses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. 
Included are packing charges, selling charges, precool- 
ing, top ice, or other costs which contribute to the val- 
ue of the product at shipping point. The value per 
unit for quantities soldto processors is the average value 
paid for usable quantities, on a "delivered to plant door" 
basis. This value includes transportation and other nor- 
mal costs incident to delivery at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cullage and 



other quantities not sold or utilized because of natural or 
economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES include harvested acreage for 
all counties for which either published data would result 
in the disclosure of individual operations or acreage totals 
for specific commodities are of minor importance in the 
State. 

Beginning with the 1977-78 crop season, all ship- 
ments and unloads, j^aiL_truck, air and boat, are record- 
ed nationally in 10,000 pound units each day. Annual re- 
leases are in 1, 000 cwt. In this publication shipments and 
unloads for some commodities were converted to most 
common trading units. Rail and piggyback weights and 
conversion factors were determined by several Market 
News Service field offices. Mixed car (rail) loadings by 
stations have been prorated by commodities. 

Where possible the national Market News Service 
in Washington, D. C. has established a single un if or m 
weight per commodity to be used nationally in converting 
to weight units for the various means of transportation. 
Weights per common container used and number of units 
per rail car or truck may be obtained by writing the MNS 
office in Winter Park, Florida. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT— The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to what is believed 
to be the most commonly used containers. If changes in 
container weights are necessary, all data pertaining to 
the production of the commodity in question is revised to 
maintain comparability between years. The table below 
gives the net weight used per container and the number of 
containers per hundredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1977-78 VEGETABLE SEASON 



The farm value of Florida grown vegetables, 
melons, potatoes and strawberries sold totaled a record 
$632.2 million, up $71.6 million from the 1976-77 crop 
year. Acreage harvested increased 10 percent over the 
previous year when more acreage was lost from the Jan- 
uary freeze. Crops showing the greatest gains in harvest- 
ed acres were snap beans, sweet corn, eggplant, green 
peppers, tomatoes and "other vegetables". Crops increas- 
ing in value were snap beans , celery, sweet corn, cucum- 
bers eggplant, escarole, lettuce, greenpeppers, radishes , 
tomatoes, "other vegetables," watermelons and straw- 
berries. Crops with lower values than the previous year 
werecabbage, potatoes, and squash. Most of the declines 
were due to lower season average prices. Tomatoes, 
which rose $27. 3 million, showed the greatest increase in 
value, followed by lettuce and snap beans which increased 
$19.6 million and $8.8 million, respectively. "Other" 
miscellaneous vegetables totaled $61.2 million, an in- 
crease of $8. 5 million from a year ago. Most of the in- 
crease was due to gains in sales of cauliflower ,sub-tropi- 
cal vegetables and dry onions. 

Average yields for celery, cucumbers, escarole, 
lettuce and green peppers increased during the year but 
yields declined for snap beans, cabbage, squash, sweet 
corn, eggplant, potatoes, radishes, tomatoes, water- 
melons and strawberries. Improved varieties, cultural 
practices and weather conditions can affect crop yields 
considerably. 

Season average prices of snapbeans, celery, sweet 
corn, escarole, lettuce, radishes, watermelons and straw- 
berries were higher than a year earlier. Season average 
prices for cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, greenpeppers, 
potatoes and squash were below a year ago. 

Land preparation, planting and transplanting were 
very active in most areas of the state during July. Grow- 
ing conditions were generally good to excellent over most 
of the farming areas during August. Planting activity 
progressed favorably. Heavy rains and cloudy skies made 
up the weather picture the first of September. A tropical 
depres sion dropped from 1 to 8 inches of rainfall over most 
farming areas before moving into the Gulf. Harvest gained 
momentum during October and November as rainfall was 
limited to a few light to moderate showers. 

Temperatures during early December were mostly 
mild. A cold front entei-ed the farming areas in mid and 
late December, lowering temperatures into the 30 'son both 
occasions. The first front was accompanied by light, 
spotty frost and little or no damage occurred to vegetables. 
The last front caused light damage to tender foliage. 



Much of January was characterized by temperatures 
inthelow30's. Light frost and cold winds caused light to 
moderate top foliage burn to tender crops. Precipitation 
was variable, ranging from a trace to less than an inch. 
Winds were generally light to moderate. 

The month of February was dominated by cold wea- 
ther and near freezing temperatures. Several cold fronts 
moved through the vegetable growing areas, dropping 
nighttime temperatures into the high 20' s and low 30' s. 
The adverse weather caused heavy foliage burn and some 
plant loss in late February. 

Temperatures moderated in the farming areas in 
March. The weather was mostly warm and sunny. Rain- 
fall was generally light to moderate. Frost damaged 
plants began putting on new growth as growing conditions 
were greatly improved. 

The weather picture consisted of sunny days and 
mild nights throughout the month of April. Although sever- 
al cold fronts passed through the vegetable growing areas, 
temperatures were only lowered slightly. Daytime highs 
were in the 80's with lows in the 60's and 70'sat night. 
Crop conditions were generally good to excellent. Har- 
vest was in full swing for some crops while others were 
declining seasonally. 

Conditions were generally ideal during much of 
May. Below normal temperatures in some of the vegetable 
growing areas in late May set new records. Lows in the 
50's were recorded but temperatures were quickly back to 
normal. Rainfall was variable, ranging from 1 to 4 inches. 
Harvest was very active for some vegetables while de- 
clining on others. 

In June, the weather was generally normal over 
most of the vegetable growing areas. Moderate to heavy 
thundershowers occurred almost daily. Excess moisture 
caused some minor problems and delayed harvest. Day- 
time highs were mostly in the 90 's with nighttime lows in 
the70's. Winds were light to moderate, gusty near show- 
ers. Crops were generally fair to very good in most areas . 

Most of the weather data for this summary was 
supplied through the National Weather Service, U. S. 
Department of Commerce, Ruskin, Florida. Information 
on affects of weather on crops was provided by the Florida 
Crop and Livestock Reporting Service fieldmen.

SNAP BEANS 
1977-78 



Floridagrowersproducednearly4. million bush- 
els of bush and pole beans during the 1977-78 season. 
Acreage harvested totaled 39,000 acres, up 32 percent 
from the 29, 500 acres harvested during the previous sea- 
son. The substantial increase is due to the freeze of Janu- 
ary 18-20, 1977, which destroyed much of the winter acre- 
age. The average yield for the 1977-78 season was 101 
bushels per acre, as compared with 125 bushels per acre 
the previous year. The increase in harvested acres was 
enough to offset the decrease in yields. 

The average f . o. b. price of $8.06 per bushel was 
$1. 77 more than the previous year and reached an all time 
record high. Total value, at $31.9 million, was 38 per- 
cent above last year. 

Bush beans are grown in all areas of Florida with 
the exception of the east central and southwest areas. The 
southeast continues to be the major producing area. Pole 
beans are produced primarily in Dade County , with a small 
acreage grown in Gadsden and Marion counties and west 
central areas. 



Earliest fall supplies of snap beans originate from 
West Florida. The north and west central areas, the Ever- 



glades and southeastern districts also provide fall pro- 
duction. The southeast is the sole source of supply dur- 
ing the winter. The other areas resume production in the 
spring. 

Snap bean production extended from late September 
into mid June. The fall crop peaked in November, follow- 
ed by a slight decline in marketings in December and a 
sharp drop in January and February. Production began to 
increase in March, and the spring crop peaked in April. 
Twenty-two percent of the marketings occurred in April, 
unchanged from April of the previous year. 

Variable weather influenced last season's bean 
crop. Heavy rains in the Pompano area in early Septem- 
ber delayed plantings as some fields were flooded. Dur- 
ing the winter season, cold, brisk winds whipped plants, 
causing leaf damage and fruit scarring. Cold weather 
slowed maturity, resulting in lower volume. Some young 
plant loss occurred due to heavy frost. Weather during 
the spring season was mostly favorable. Strong winds at 
times caused light burn to foliage and some fruit scarring. 
Quality and yields were generally good to very good for the 
spring season. 



CABBAGE 
1977-78 



Cabbage production in Florida totaled 6. 5 million 
sacks and crates during the 1977-78 season. The gross 
value was $29.9 million — a decline of 38 percent from 
the record $48.2 million set during the 1976-77 season. 
The average f. o.b. price was $4.59 per sack and crate, 
down $1.94 from the previous year's crop. 

Acreage planted amounted to 17,700 acres, up 
nearly 4 percent from a year ago. Acreage harvested 
totaled 16,500, up 1 percent. However, total acreage 
abandoned, at 1,200 acres, was well above the 800 acres 
abandoned during the 1976-77 season. Yields were lower 
than the year before and averaged only 395 crates or sacks 
per acre. The average yield was the lowest since the 
1970-71 season. The low yields are attributed partly to 
the small size of heads during the winter and most of the 
spring season. Also, excessive moisture during the winter 
months had an adverse effect on plant development. 

Cabbage was available for market from November 
through June. Sales were about normal for the fall period 
but well below normal during the winter months. Volume 
sold during the spring period was slightly above average. 
The peak month was April followed closely by May while 
March, usually the peak month, fell to third. 



The Hastings area, which includes Flagler, Put- 
nam and St. Johns counties, is the largest producing area 
accounting for 56 percent of the state's total production, 
up slightly from last season. The north central area which 
includes Lake, Orange, Seminole and Volusia counties was 
second in production with 21 percent of the total. Average 
yields were lower than a year ago in all growing areas 
of the state. 

Early transplanting and direct seeding were under- 
way by late August and September. Transplanting was most 
active from October through December. Some acreage 
was lost during the winter months but most was replanted. 



First cuttings were made in early November. Har- 
vest increased rapidly until January when adverse wea- 
ther slowed the development of plants. Wet, cold weather 
kept cabbage from sizing properly and there were a lot of 
small heads harvested. Volume was heavy through the 
spring but heads continued to be smaller than average. 
Spring shipments accounted for 45 percent of the total 
1977-78 harvest, exceeding the winter volume by 1 per- 
centage point.

CARROTS 
1977-78 



Production of carrots in Florida continued to gain 
during the year. There were 1, 140, 000 cwt. shipped out 
of state for both fresh use and processing. Fresh market 
use constituted 79 percent and processing 21 percent. 
Shipments were 18 percent above the previous year. This 
was due primarily to an increase in acreage in the Zell- 
wood area. Carrots are not part of the regular estimates 
program, therefore, data on acreage and production are 
not published. 

The muck soils around Lake Apopka, near Zell- 
wood and the Everglades provide a good medium for growth. 
The mini or finger carrot harvest usually begins in late 



October and is complete by the end of May. Regular size 
carrots are harvested from November through June. The 
peak harvest period last season was January to about mid 
May. 

The young carrots are subject to cold damage in 
January and February in the Zellwood area. Some re- 
planting was necessary last winter. Occasionally the tops 
of older carrots are "burned" by frost or cold winds but 
the crop grows out of it. With the exception of several 
cold periods, which lasted for only a few days, growing 
conditions were generally favorable. Quality was good 
throughout the season. 



CELERY 
1977-78 



Florida celery marketings of 6.4 million crates 
were harvested from 10,900 acres during the 1977-78 
growing season. The average yield of 588 crates per acre 
compares with 578 crates for the previous year. 

Prices were improved over the previous season. 
Celery averaged $7.36 f. o. b. per crate compared with 
$6.70 in the 1976-77 season. Prices averaged lower for 
the fall and winter quarter but were above a year earlier 
for the heavy spring quarter. The crop was valued at 
S47.2 million, an increase of 21 percent over the previous 
crop year. 

The Everglades, with 84 percent of the harvested 
acreage, was the foremost area of production throughout 
the season. The north central area, supplemented by light 
volume from the Sarasota area, accounted for the remain- 
ing 16 percent of acreage and provided a continuous supply 
throughout the season. 

Plant bed preparation and seeding were underway 
by early June. Transplanting became active in the Ever- 
glades and Zellwood around mid to late August and gained 
momentum as the season progressed. Planting in the Ever- 
glades continued into early April while some acreage in 
the north centr al district was still being seeded in late 
April. Growers in the Sarasota area planted mostly from 
October to March. 



Light harvest began in early November in the Zell- 
wood area and by mid November in the Everglades . Grow- 
ing conditions were hot and humid in the summer and early 
fall. Cool weather in early November was beneficial. 
Growers were faced with a leaf miner problem and con- 
siderable spraying was necessary to bring it under control. 
Heavy stripping of outer stems and foliage was necessary. 

Yields were reduced by stripping. Quality was 
variable for the fall crop but was greatly improved for the 
winter and spring crops. No significant damage from 
freezes occurred to celery during the season. Yields dur- 
ing the winter and spring quarters were considerably high- 
er than a year earlier when that crop was hit hard by the 

late January freeze. The favorable spring market was 
welcomed by growers . Approximately 6percentof the 
crop was not harvested for various reasons. Growers 
passed some acreage in order to maintain good quality. 

Celery production was most active December 
through May. Cutting declined seasonally in late May and 
June and was completed by July 1 in all areas. 

Celery is subject to a federal marketing order ad- 
ministered by the Florida Celery Committee. Their field 
supervisors provide the basic acreage and production data. 
In cooperation with the committee, these data are assem- 
bled into weekly, monthly and annual reports. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1977-78 



Chinese cabbage is grown primarily on the muck- 
lands in the Zellwood and Everglades areas. The organic 
soils provide a good medium for rapid growth. Harvest 
w as underway by mid November. Volume was light through 
November but increased to a good supply level in Decem- 
ber and January. Production peaked in March and April. 
Good supplies were available from December to mid May. 



During mid to late April, Zellwood was providing good 
supplies while the Everglades was tapering off seasonally. 
The season was over by mid June. Yields and quality 
were generally good throughout the growing season. The 
crop did not suffer significantly from cold weather or dis- 
ease. Shipments for the season totaled 170,000 cwt. ,up 
6 percent from a year earlier.

SWEET CORN 
1977-78 



Florida, the nation's leading sweet corn producer 
for fresh sales, marketed almost 12.7 million crates dur- 
ing the 1977-78 season. Production increased 6 percent 
from the previous year. Growers harvested 56,500 acres, 
up 12 percent from the 50,300 acres harvested during the 
1976-77 season. Yields averaged 224 crates per acre 
statewide compared with 23 8 crates a year earlier. Yields 
have averaged above 200 crates per acre for every year 
since the record 244 crate average in the 1972-73 crop 
year. 



Everglades during December was partially offset by har- 
vest on the lower east coast and Dade County. 

Harvest of the spring crop in the Everglades was 
underway by early April. The Everglades became the 
main source of supply in late April as the east coast and 
Dade County began to phase out. The transition of harvest 
from the Everglades to Zellwood occurred in mid May. 
Lake County provided a good volume in June. The season 
was complete in early July. 



The season average f. o. b. price of $3. 89 per crate 
was 20 cents above the average for the previous year. The 
total value of the crop was $49.2 million, up $5. 1 million 
from the $44. 1 million received for the 1976-77 crop. The 
value of sweet corn ranked second in the state in vegetable 
crops and was exceeded only by the value of tomatoes. 

First plantings of the season were underway in the 
Everglades in mid August. Seeding on the east coast got 
underway in late September and increased rapidly. Plant- 
ings were interrupted by adverse weather in late November 
in the east coast area. First harvest began in the Ever- 
glades in the week ended September 12th and reached a 
fall peak in late October. The declining harvest in the 



Small acreage provided supplemental supplies at 
Zellwood and the west central area during the early fall, 
and at Sarasota in the early spring. 

Weather during the growing season was mostly 
favorable. Rain caused some minor problems to young 
corn during the early fall growing season. Cold weather 
in early January slowed growth and harvest in the lower 
east coast and Dade County. Frost and freezing temper- 
atures in mid to late February destroyed considerable 
acreage of young corn in the Everglades. Conditions for 
the spring crop were very good. Quality and yields were 
good to excellent for most of the season. 



CUCUMBERS 
1977-78 



Florida production of fresh market cucumbers 
during the 1977-78 cropyear was over 4. 4 million bushels, 
up 17 percent from the 1976-77 crop. The 16,500 acres 
planted was up 400 acres from the previous year and con- 
tinued the upward trend started three years ago. Harves- 
ted acres totaled 15,800 compared with 15,000 harvested 
a year earlier. Average yield per acre, at 282 bushels, 
was up 29 bushels from the previous year. Total produc- 
tion was valued at $22. 4 million compared with $19.7 mil- 
lion for the previous year. The f. o.b. price for 1977-78 
averaged $5. 03 per bushel, down 16 cents from the aver- 
age price of $5.19 per bushel received for the previous 
year's crop. 

Supplies in 1977-78 were generally available from 
September through June, with light marketings in January 
through March. Much of the recorded shipments moving 
out-of-state January through March are from offshore and 
truck imports resold in mixed loads. 



The production of cucumbers is well distributed 
across the state. The southwest area, with 43 percent of 
the planted acreage during 1977-78, is the largest area. 
The west central area accounted for 28 percent of the 
planted acres in the state. The areas in the west, north 
central and southeast provide the remaining crop. 

Weather during much of the growing season was 
generally favorable. Heavy rains during early fall caused 
only minor problems on young acreage. In early October, 
locally heavy rains washed beds and leached fertilizer in 
some fields. Cold, gusty winds in late November caused 
light to moderate leaf burn in unprotected fields. The wea- 
ther from mid December to the end of the fall season was 
characterized by cold, gusty winds and frost. Conditions 
for the spring crop were mostly good although the season 
got off to a poor start due to adverse weather. Yields, 
size, quality and color were very good most of the season. 



5 



EGGPLANT 
1977-78 



Plantings of 2,400 acres were 7 percent above the 
1976-77 season. Yields averaged 660 bushels per acre, 
41 bushels below the previous season. Weather was gen- 
erally very favorable during much of the growing season 
with the exception of the winter season. However, during 
early December, plant maturity and fruit set were reduced 
by adverse weather. Poor market conditions caused some 
abandonment of older fields. In mid February, below nor- 
mal temperatures and frost slowed maturity and fruit set 
and caused considerable bloom droppage. Growing con- 
ditions during the spring quarter were very good but plant 
size was smaller than normal. Poor pollination and small 
fruit size reduced packout. Quality and fruit set were ex- 
cellent but fruit size was small. 

Production of eggplant increased to 1.5 million 
bushels, slightly above last year's production. Total sales 
increased to $5.6 million compared with $5.3 million a 
year earlier. The increase was due to a greater produc- 
tion which offset the slightly lower price per bushel. The 
season averageprice of $3. 80 per bushel is 10 cents lower 
than ayear ago. The spring crop was higher in price than 
a year earlier but the fall and winter crops were much lower „ 



The distribution of marketings was generally nor- 
mal. Harvest began in late September, reached a peak in 
November and dropped during the winter. Harvest began 
to increase in April and reached a peak in June. Harvest 
was virtually complete by early July. The southeast area 
around Pompano continued to dominate with 60 percent of 
the harvested acreage. The northern and central areas 
combined contributed 32 percent of acreage harvested with 
the remaining small acreage in the southwest. 

Production is generally continuous through the en- 
tire crop year in the southeast and southwest, while the 
crops in western, northern and central areas are for fall 
and spring harvest only. Those areas receive too much 
freezing weather to grow eggplant during the winter months . 

First sales were from cuttings in the western and 
northern growing areas in late September. Harvest follow- 
ed the usual pattern and progressed southward in the fall, 
continued through the winter in southern areas and then 
moved back northward in the spring. 



ESCAROLE -ENDIVE 
1977-78 



Production of escarole and endive during the 
1977-78 season totaled 3.3 million crates, up .2 million 
crates from a year ago. The 6, 100 acres harvested was 
up 100 acres from the previous season. Yields per acre 
averaged 535 crates compared with 513 crates the previous 
year. 

Prices during the season averaged $4. 63 per crate, 
compared with $4.07 a year earlier. The total value of 
sales, at $15.1 million, was 21 percent above the pre- 
vious year and a new record high. 

The Everglades, which had 73 percent of the har- 
vested acreage in the 1977-78 season, began seeding in 
mid September. Weekly planting schedules continued 
through March. Light harvest began in late October and 
supplies were continuous through early June. The muck- 



lands around Zellwood provided good volume in the late 
spring months . The smaller acreage grown on Lake Placid 
and Sarasota mucklands also furnished supplemental sup- 
plies during much of the season. 

Sales started relatively slow in October but in- 
creased considerably to a good volume by November. 
Marketings reached peak levels in March. Good volume 
continued into May. Harvest declined seasonally and was 
over by mid June. 

Growing conditions were generally favorable dur- 
ing most of the season. During late January and early 
February, frost caused some minor tip and leaf burn to 
the growing crop. Some stripping was necessary later in 
the season. Quality of escarole and endive was mostly 
good throughout the season.

LETTUCE 
1977-78 



Florida lettuce growers produced arecord 2.0 
million hundredweight during the 1977-78 season. This 
was 37 percent above the previous season. A 5 percent 
increase in acreage along with an increase of 44 cwt. per 
acre contributed to the record production. Average yield 
of 195 cwt. per acre compares with 151 cwt. per acre for 
the previous season. The season average f. o. b. price of 
$19. 09 per cwt. was $6. 75 above the average for the pre- 
vious season. Prices were well above the previous year 
for all quarters. 

Acreage, production and value statistics of lettuce 
in this bulletin combine the various types into a single 
estimate. The types in order ofimportance include ice- 
berg, romaine, Boston, bibb and leaf types. The Ever- 
glades muckland accounted for 84 percent of the planted 
acreage and was the source of a continuous supply which 
began in late October and ended in early June. Outside 
the Everglades, Zellwood is the other major producing 
area, with Sarasota and the Lake Placid mucklands con- 
tributing light supplies during most of the season. 



Seeding was underway by early September. All 
areas were actively planting by the end of the month. The 
Everglades and Sarasota areas had continuous plantings 
through March. 

Harvest was underway by late October with light 
volume to mid November. Volume of all types increased 
in late November and December, with growers cutting in 
most areas. The Everglades provided the bulk of the 
volume duringthe winter period. Supplies peaked in April 
and then declined seasonally until harvest was completed 
in early June. Supplies from the Zellwood area are light 
during the winter months. Moderate volume is available 
from this area in the fall and spring. 

Growing conditions during the early fall were hot 
and humid. Growth was generally very good. December 
rains caused some problems. Frost killed some young 
acreage in January in the Zellwood area. Some replanting 
was necessary. Volume gained rapidly in March and 
April. Quality was good. 



PEPPERS 
1977-78 



Duringthe 1977-78 season, Florida produced 8.2 
million bushels of peppers, arecord high, from 18,800 
acres. The average yield of 434 bushels per acre was 9 
percent above the 400 bushels the previous year. Produc- 
tion was 21 percent above the previous year. 

The season average f.o.b price of $5.17 per 
bushel was down from an average of $5. 66 for the previous 
year. The total value of $42. 2 million was 11 percent 
above the previous year. Prices were generally good 
during the winter period. Marketings were light in Octo- 
ber but increased to a good level by December. Supplies 
decreased during the winter months and began an upward 
swing in April. The peak spring production occurred in 
May. The season then declined and was mostly over by 
the end of June. 



The 3 percent decrease in total planted acreage was 
the result of a 6 per cent drop in the heavy producing south- 
west area, a 12 percent decrease in the west central area 
and a 7 percent decrease in the north. Increases in the 
north central and southeast areas were not enough to off- 
set these decreases. The southwest accounted for 59 per- 
cent of the state's total pepper acreage. The southeast 
had 19 percent; the north central area, 9 percent; the north, 
7 percent; and the west central area, 6 percent. 

Heavy rains during early September leached ferti- 
lizer and caused some light flooding. Spot resetting was 
necessary in some fields. Fields with plastic generally 
come through in better condition. Freezing temperatures 
and heavy frost duringthe winter months caused extensive 
top foliage burn and some youngplant 1 oss. Growing con- 
ditions were generally very good during the spring period. 
Yields were good to very good.

POTATOES 
1977-78 



Production of potatoes in 1978, including both the 
winter and spring seasons, totaled 5.7 million hundred- 
weight, down 9 percent from the year before. A total of 
32,800 acres were planted during the year, compared 
with 30,500 acres planted in 1977. Of this total, 32,300 
acres were harvested, 7 percent more than the previous 
year. The value of the crop was $35. 2 million, down 16 
percent from 1977. 

The average yield was only 175 cwt. per acre, 
well below the record high yield in 1977 of 206 cwt. per 
acre. The winter crop averaged 195 cwt. , 15 cwt. above 
the freeze damaged crop of 1977. The springyields were 
down sharply from the year before. The spring acreage 
grown in the Hastings area, which includes Flagler, Put- 
nam and St. Johns counties, averaged only 170 cwt. , well 
below the 1977 record yield of 220 cwt. per acre. Spring 
potatoes grown in all other areas of the state averaged 
only 125 cwt. per acre, the lowest since 1971. 

The 1978 season average price of $6. 21 per cwt. 
was 50 cents less than the average received in 1977. Low- 
er prices received in May and June kept the season aver- 



age price down. 

The "red-skinned" varieties continue to dominate 
the winter crop grown in south Florida. Production from 
the winter crop is used primarily for table stock. The 
"white-skinned" varieties grown in the spring in the Hast- 
ings area are used mostly in making potato chips. How- 
ever, some red varieties are grown in the spring and pack 
aged for table stock sales. 

Harvest of the winter potato crop extended over a 
longer period of time than usual. Digging was underway 
in early January and was not completed until early May. 
The spring crop grown in the Hastings area and other areas 
was damaged by excessive moisture during the growing 
season. This caused a sharp reduction in yield and slight- 
ly lower quality. Planting of the spring crop was com- 
pleted on time. Rain and cold kept the crop from develop- 
ing properly. Harvest got underway in April and pro- 
gressed rapidly to the May peak and was completed by the 
last week in June. May continued to be the heavy shipping 
month. 



RADISHES 
1977-78 



In 1977-78, radish plantings amounted to 32,000 
acres compared with 31, 000 planted the previous year. 
Acres harvested totaled 28, 200, a record high, compared 
with 27, 300 in 1976-77. Yield peracre averaged287 car- 
tons compared with 291 cartons the previous season. The 
crop was valued at $22. 2 million, up 36 percent from a 
year earlier and an all time record high. The average 
f. o.b. price was $2.74 per carton, up 68 cents from the 
previous year. 

A good supply of both red and white radishes was 



available from Zellwood, Lake Placid and the Everglades 
from October through May with a light volume going into 
June. The fall peak harvest occurred in November and 
held the same level throughout December. The spring 
peak occurred in April. Seeding of the 1977-78 crop was 
underway in the Everglades and north central areas in 
early September. Some early fields received too much 
rain. Light harvest was underway in late September and 
became quite active in mid November. Supplemental sup- 
plies were available from Lake Placid and Sarasota dur- 
ing the year. 



SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1977-78 



Spinach statistics have not been published separat- 
ly for Florida in recent years in order to avoid disclosure 
of individual operations. However, data for these seasons 
have been included in "other vegetables" in the overall 
summary table. This historical series is being main- 
tained for this report with the anticipation that clearance 



may be possible for future public ation of data. Also, 
data for historical years are published in order to show 
the relative importance of this crop. Yield per acre was 
above a year earlier. Growing season was generally 
favorable. Most of the crop is grown in north central and 
north areas. 



S 



SQUASH 
1977-78 



Florida's production of squash during the 1977-78 
season, at 1.7 million bushels, is .2 million bushels be- 
low last year's record high. Harvested acreage totaling 
11,850 acres, decreased 1 percent from the previous 
year. The yield at 143 bushels per acre was down 15 
bushels from the previous year. 

The average f.o.b. price of $4.28 per bushel was 
down $1. 61 from last season. Total f.o.b. cash receipts 
amounted to about $7.3 million. Prices were generally 
favorable throughout the season. 

Floridaproduces acorn, butternut, yellow crook- 
neck, yellow straightneck, white and zucchini squash. 
Dade County with 30 percent of the state's harvested acre- 
age in 1977-78, produces yellow crookneck almost exclu- 
sively. The Pompano area, in addition to being a major 
producing area, is also an important market for squash 
grown in other areas of the state. This is especially true 
when local supplies reach low levels during the winter 



months. The southwest produces a continuous supply of 
most types. Central, north and west Florida provide a 
good volume of most types during the fall and spring sea- 
son. 

Squash is one of the few crops grown in Florida 
that is shipped every month of the year, although ship- 
ments during the summer are usually light and confined 
mostly to local markets. The 1977-78 season got off to 
a fair to good start as rains caused some minor problems. 
Marketings increased to a fall peak in November and early 
December, before showing a seasonal decline during the 
winter months. Cold winds in late November and early 
December caused light to moderate foliage burn. During 
the winter months, January through March, cold tempera- 
tures and frost slowed growth and caused extensive foliage 
burn and plant kill to both old and young crops . Weather 
was favorable during the spring quarter, and production 
was heavy. Peak marketings for the season occurred in 
May. 



STRAWBERRIES 
1977-78 



Florida strawberry growers produced 2.8 million 
flats of berries during the 1977-78 season, up 33 percent 
from the previous year. Harvested acreage totaling 
2 , 000 acres also increased 33 percent from a year earlier. 
The increase in acreage more than offset the slight decline 
in yield per acre. The average f.o.b. return per flat for 
the season was $5. 88, up $1. 67 from the previous season. 
The value of the crop was a record $16.6 million, up 
sharply from the $9. million received for the crop a year 
ago. 



Laying of plastic and other field work was in full 
swing by late September in the Plant City and Dade County 
areas. Transplanting began by early October and was 



completed by early December. Transplantings were com- 
pleted in Bradford County by late November. Light har- 
vest was underway by mid December in the Plant City and 
Dade areas. Early harvested berries were primarily for 
local use and roadside stands. Light shipments began in 
January and reached a peak in March. Most of the com- 
mercial harvest was completed by late April and growers 
opened fields to the public for u-pic operations. Crop 
progress was good in the November and December grow- 
ing period. Cold and rains in January and February slow- 
ed maturity and reduced fruit quality. By mid March, 
quality and size were very good. Peak volume was reach- 
ed by the third week of March. First harvest was under- 
way in Bradford County by early April and the season was 
drawing to a close by mid May.

TOMATOES 
1977-78 



The total value of the Florida tomato crop for fresh 
and processing utilization increased from last season. 
The S182. 3 million was 18 percent above the previous sea- 
son and a record value. The main factor contributing to 
the increase was more acres harvested - up 22 percent 
from a year earlier. 

Total production of 30.1 million 30-pound carton 
equivalents was 18 percent above the previous season. 
The fresh market channel utilized 95 percent of the pro- 
duction and the remaining 5 percent was for processing. 
The Palmetto-Ruskin area accounted for 40.8 percent of 
the production; Dade County, 20.0 percent; the southwest, 
26. 1 percent and the Ft. Pierce-Pompano area, 10. 5 per- 
cent. The remainder of the production was in the west, 
north, and north central areas. 

The state average yield, at 688 (30-pound) cartons 
per acre, was down 24 cartons from the previous season. 
This decrease was due in part to hot weather causing heavy 
bloom bud and open bloom droppage which in effect lowered 
yields. Dade County supplies the bulk of winter tomatoes. 
Fall shipments peaked in December, which accounted for 
16.0 percent of the season's market sales. Spring pro- 
duction reached a peak in May, which amounted to 29.3 



percent of the season's total. Tomatoes are usually har- 
vested continuously from late October to mid June. 

The Palmetto-Ruskin area continued to be the acre- 
age leader, with 14,950 acres harvested. Dade County 
ranked second, harvesting 10, 750 acres. The southwest 
harvested 9, 800 acres, and the Ft. Pierce-Pompano area, 
4,400 acres. There were 1,600 acres harvested in the 
north, north central, and west areas, 45 percent more 
than last year. Most of this increase in acreage was in 
Gadsden County. 

Seeding and transplanting were underway in all 
areas in August. Heavy rains in early September delayed 
plantings, washed beds, damaged young seedlings in low 
areas and leached fertilizer in some fields. Damage was 
minimal. Mostly favorable weather prevailed throughout 
the remainder of the fall season. During the winter sea- 
son, cold winds and heavy frost mid to late February 
caused extensive foliage burn and some young plant loss. 
Weather conditions were generally favorable for the spring 
season, although there was some light fruit scarring in 
late April. In mid May, locally heavy showers damaged 
plants in low spots in the Palmetto-Ruskin area. Some 
growers were unable to pick as many times as normal due 
to poor market conditions. 



WATERMELONS 
1977-78 



Watermelon acreage planted during the 1977-78 
season totaled 59,000 acres — down 9 percent from the 
previous season. Of the total acres planted, 50,000 acres 
were harvested, 2 percent less than 1977. The crop of 8 
million hundredweight was down 10 percent from the year 
before and the lowest production since the 1973-74 season. 
The average yield for the state was 160 cwt. , 15 cwt. less 
thanayear ago. The average yields varied considerably 
by areas with the Panhandle averaging only 90 cwt. per 
acre and the southwest averaging 206 cwt. per acre. 

The value of the crop totaled $26. 8 million, 1 per- 
cent more than last season. The average price received 
by growers was nearly 3. 4 cents per pound compared to 
nearly 3 cents received in 1977. Higher prices in the 
southern growing areas helped to offset the lower price 
received in the north and west. 

The watermelon harvest season usually begins in 
the Ft. Myers - Immokalee areas in late March and early 
April, depending on late winter and early spring weather. 
The season progresses northward into the central areas 
during May and the northern areas of the state provide 
the heavy June volume. Harvest begins in the western 
counties in June and continues into July. 

First plantings were made in the Immokalee area 
by late December. Periodic cold fronts passing through 



the state during January and February caused acreage 
losses, delayed seed germination, and poor plant develop - 
ment. Reseeding and spot replanting was necessary before 
stands were obtained. The first melons did not move from 
the area until early May. 

Planting was active in the north and west by mid 
March. Cold weather and wet soils slowed planting, seed 
germination and plant development. Stands were skippy 
in many fields. 

Harvest was underway in the central areas by late 
May and in the north by mid June. Volume increased 
rapidly into June with all areas, except the west, ship- 
ping during the early part of the month. Harvest in June 
accounted for 72 percent of the state's total watermelon 
production in 1978. 

Light harvest was underway by late June in the 
Panhandle. More than half the acreage planted was aban- 
doned inthe western counties because of poor market con- 
ditions and dry weather in some areas. Average yield 
for the Panhandle was only 90 cwt. compared to 100 cwt. 
per acre the year before. Many fields were picked only 
once which kept the yield low. By the last half of July the 
season was practically over except for a few local sales.

OTHER CROPS 
1977-78 



Cantaloups are grown primarily in the southwest 
and north central areas of Florida. A considerable pro- 
portion of the production is sold through local markets and 
roadside stands. The peak harvest period is May and June. 
Harvest begins in the southwest and moves northward as 
the season progresses. 

Acreage remains at a relatively low level. How- 
ever, this crop is not part of the regular estimates pro- 
gram. Researchers are working to develop several new 
varieties that will be better adapted to Florida's soil and 
climate. There appears to be some promise that acreage 
may expand at sometime in the future. 

Cauliflower is expanding in the Zellwood, Hills- 
borough, and Everglades areas. Supplies are available 
from November through April. There has been a renewed 
interest in cauliflower production recently. At the present 
time statistics are not for publication. Shipment data for 
the 1978-79 season are now being published by the Market 
News Service. 

Sub-tropical vegetable production increased from 
the previous season. Most acreage is grown in Dade 
County. Commercial production began in the early 60' s. 
Sub-tropical vegetables is a colloquial expression applied 
to certain vegetables eaten primarily by those of Latin 
American and Caribbean origin. The most common name 
for each crop followed by its scientific name is listed be- 
low. Other common terms for the various vegetables are 
shown in parentheses. The crops consist primarily of 
boniatos-ipomea batatos (sweet potato); calabaza-cucur- 
bita (pumpkin); malanga-xanthosoma sagitaefolium (da- 
sheen, yautias); and yuea-monihot escuienta (sweet cas- 
sava). Miami is an important point of consumption for 
the Florida production. Also, considerable amounts are 
shipped to Tampa, New York City and Philadelphia. 

Collard , turnip , mustard and other greens are 
grown for both fresh market and processing markets. 
These crops are grown throughout the state and centered 
around the large population areas and in the muck soils of 



the Everglades and Zellwood areas. Good volume is avail- 
able November through May with the peak shipping period 
occurring January through March. Shipments totaled 
140,000 cwt. during the 1977-78 season compared with 
82, 000 cwt. shipped a year earlier. 

Okra is grown in many areas of the state during 
the warm seasons of the year. However, Dade County 
produces okra for local use as well as for shipments to 
out-of-state markets. Good volume occurs October 
through July with peak movement in May and June. 

Green onions and leeks are produced in the north 
central areas. Supplies are marketed primarily at local 
markets. Supplies of dry onions have been increasing for 
the past several years. Most of the dry onion production 
is concentrated in the Everglades, southwest and west 
central areas. 

Parsley is available in both the curly and plain 
types. The bulk of the commercial v o 1 u m e shipped to 
other states is produced in the Everglades and Zellwood 
areas. Light supplies sold for local use are available 
from the Sarasota, Lake Placid and other areas. 

Southern peas are grown primarily in the north- 
west, west central and the Everglades areas of Florida. 
Dade County also produces a considerable amount of south- 
ern peas. Light supplies are available September through 
December. Heavy movement occurs during the April 
through June period, especially in northwest Florida. A 
high percentage of the crop goes for processing. Good 
supplies are sold through local markets for fresh use. 
Market News Service shipment statistics will be available 
for the 1978-79 season. 

Watercress is available the year round. The major 
source of supply is Oviedo. Most of the production is 
shipped to northern and eastern markets in the United 
States. A limited supply is available from local state 
farmers markets, especially the Sanford market.
